Welcome To St. Anthony in Newfoundland & Labrador
Let your spirit sail on the northern tip of Newfoundland & Labrador.
Nestled on the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland & Labrador lies the cozy little town of St. Anthony – where history and scenery intertwine to capture the imagination of all who visit.
This small coastal town was famously home to Sir Wilfred Grenfell, a medical missionary that first travelled to the island of Newfoundland in the 1890s. Grenfell fell in love with the island’s weathered coast and the determined people that occupied it, so his mission expanded: he went on to build hospitals, orphanages, nursing stations and co-operatives across the Northern Peninsula and coastal Labrador. Visitors can explore his home at Grenfell House and uncover his legacy at the Grenfell Historic Properties.
There’s plenty of scenery to go around in St. Anthony! Visit L’Anse aux Meadows, the only authenticated Viking site in North America, and explore the turf structures that early Norse settlers once called home. Fishing Point Municipal Park offers an extensive network of trails with incredible vantage points to view coastline, seabirds, icebergs, and whales (and maybe even a polar bear). In Fishing Point, you’ll also find the Fox Point Lighthouse – a great location to survey the view and to stop for a meal at the Lightkeeper’s Seafood Restaurant.
St. Anthony has thousands of years of history and natural beauty hidden within its craggy coast. What will your cruise audience discover first?
